brake hand up or down?

since this thread's up, now's a good time to get a discussion going and increase awareness about which way the brake hand should be, I prefer the hand's down method (as I think most people do, however I've seen a few hands up belays at the crags) as it gives you way more braking power if your about to catch big whipper...
